Hello my friend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to write....nice hearing from you again.
When you are ready, call the shop and we will be more than happy to work with you. IF you are sailing Mother's day weekend, make sure you call at least 2 to 3 weeks prior to sailing.

Thanks so much and have a great time planning for the big day.
much love always
Shirley

Michael is a phenomenon young man. He is a local and knows the area extremely well. I believe, if I am correct, that Michael gives a couple free stops so that you can pick up things that you need for your cruise AND he makes sure its not a fly by night place. He gives you an insight of Brevard County etc more or less a tour of what you will see on your way to the port.
I have found Michael to be honest and very trustworthy and that is why I recommend him highly. Make sure you let him know that you got the information from this board.
As always

After reading here, I called Mike at VIP Limo. Just spoke to him, he was very nice and helpful, and I already made my reservation for May 2014.

All I have to do is email him back when I know my flight info, and he said our rate is locked in, in case their rates go up in the next year.

I mentioned this thread, and I mentioned you too, Shirley. He said very nice things about you. Thanks again for all of the info in this thread!

Because I mentioned in the this thread, a while back, that National was now available in Port Canaveral, I thought I'd report back about my rental experience with National at the Enterprise/Alamo/National location. Things were relatively smooth when we dropped off our rental. However the ladies bathroom was really gross. I didn't comment on it, but on the shuttle to the port, another woman was complaining loudly. I thought she overstated it by calling it something out of a horror movie, but I will agree that it was more than a little gross. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned in quite some time.

When we returned to port, the shuttle bus we got on had definitely seen better days. It was really run down looking and it rattled something fierce. This was not the same bus we were on when we took the shuttle to the port. That first bus seemed in good repair.

My biggest problem came from the car I was given. I was given my choice of three cars. Knowing nothing about them, I asked which had the biggest trunk space. She told me which one, but then asked me to wait a moment. She went outside and came back in and told me she was giving me a different one altogether because it had more trunk space. I didn't hear her say what it was and just went with it. Unfortunately, it was the Impala, which I really don't like, but it was only for a few days and I just went with it.

The real problem was that the car was not clean, externally. The inside seemed clean enough, but the windows were filthy. It had a message on the dash stating that it needed windshield fluid and sure enough it did. It also had only a quarter tank of gas. We had to stop before leaving the area to buy gas and clean the windows. And we lost money because we returned the car with more gas than we received it with.

This was definitely not the experience I usually have when renting from National. I'll be trying a different location next time we rent a car in Port Canaveral.

As most know that I do not recommend Zackery's simply due to their lack of good service, their food on and on and on. In fact Pete and his crew went there and came back and said never again....I found a place today that is thisclose to the Radisson, Residence Inn and Country Inn & Suites that I found to be very nice, clean, interesting and just down to earth...It is called Swaggers Southern Style Eatery and located at 8501 Astronaut Blvd, Cape Canaveral. The website is http://www.swaggerseatery.com/
They are opened from 7AM until 2PM for the present time.
They sure got my attention today and I will not recommend anyone unless I try it first and again very nice and clean...
ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HUGSSSSSSSSS from me to you
again just a thought

OK I just heard from Todd and appears that his website was hacked...yes he is still open and doing great. He will be calling me this afternoon so that we can find out what the problem is and get it corrected. ANYONE with any questions can call him at 321-216-7132 which is his cell for this moment.

Todd is such a great young man and his parking is the one that I recommend VERY HIGHLY simply because of his loyality, honesty and compassion and besides that he goes to the edge for anyone.
Thanks
Shirley

Does Todd own both urls? The link that says "of" is registered to a Todd. The link that says "at" and is being redirected, is registered by proxy. The "of" link is working fine.

Hi Shirley! My DH and I will be sailing the Dream soon with my sister and husband. I've got a quick question for you. She's coming from the Tampa area (airport to be exact). Do you know of any reputable town car services from there by any chance? They don't think they want to rent a car, I'd appreciate any advice you can give at all. Thanks!!
